Flame as a young girl. Well about 16-17. She sure was a pretty girl eh?
Here's one for comparison at 29 yo
Sin, RIP. Flame's half sister. She sure was a pain to ride, a total sweetie on the ground, but liked to blow up in the saddle. She died in the pasture, vet thought it likely a massive stroke.
This is Red RIP, Sin's full brother and Flame's half brother. He died almost two years ago, we put him down. Such a sweetheart on the ground and in the saddle. He loved to run and damn he was fast, we used to race the tractors on the road when we were young and dumb. One of those horses that would go wherever you pointed him without a question. He's the reason I absolutely love chestnuts/sorrels.
Here's one of my kitteh Cougar. It doesn't do him justice though he really was a pretty kitty. My parents gave him to me for my 10th bday. I put him to sleep Dec 27, 2007. Had him for over half my life.
Last but not least is Mo aka The Motorman. My parents gave him to me because he was bit in the head at 5.5 wks old. His skull was fractured and there was a chance he would seizure as an adult, so they couldn't sell him. My good luck there. Funny it was the dog I trained that bit him, I always say she picked him out for me.
The first pic is when we went to Vail, CO right after I got him. We slid down the mountainside (small part obviously). The next is the summer after when he was finally allowed out and about after having sugery for OCD on his shoulder. He finally learned to love swimming after that surgery. The last is when he was about 4 yo and we were cuddling on the couch at my old house.
